LAHORE: A 16-year-old boy named Daniyal Tanvir, who was Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan's biggest fan, has passed away in Lahore, Express News reported.
Adam was a heart patient and had been advised by doctors to undergo a cardiac transplant.
He died suddenly on Monday on his way to the hospital, where he was going to get polio drops before he was to fly to India on Wednesday for treatment.
The 16-year-old's last wish was to meet Imran -- a meeting which had taken place yesterday at the teenage boy's residence.
The PTI chief expressed grief for Daniyal's death on his twitter account, acknowledging that he had met the teenager just yesterday.
